The Bible does NOT address this specific scenario, but we do know that when a person “gets saved” God forgives ALL of their sins, including divorce. 1 John 1:7 states emphatically, “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” In Hebrews 10:17 God assures the believer, “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” So, the blood of Christ has washed ALL SINS away and God promises never to bring them up again! In light of this truth, I believe she would be “allowed to get married again.” But if she does plan to get married, there are two things to keep in mind.

1) She should MARRY A BELIEVER. 2 Corinthians 6:14-15 says, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?” (NKJV) If she wants to truly enjoy the marriage relationship the way God intends her to, she will marry one who has also trusted in Christ as their own personal Savior. To marry an unbeliever is to invite disaster, and possibly another divorce, for a believer and an unbeliever have nothing in common spiritually. It’s like putting two different kinds of animals together in a yoke and expecting them to work together in harmony. Deuteronomy 22:10 reads, “Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together.” An ox and an ass will NOT work together for they have two completely different natures. Instead of harmony, there will be discord. So it is with a believer and an unbeliever; the believer has a new divine nature that loves GOD and wants to do His will; the unbeliever has a fallen and corrupt nature that loves SELF and wants to do his own will. They simply can’t walk together in harmony. The prophet Amos asked this question in Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

2) She should MARRY IN THE LORD. In 1 Corinthians 7:39 Paul gave us this instruction, “The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.” Here is another case where a Christian woman is “allowed to get married” because her husband has died and Paul lays down a very important principle that holds true for all who would remarry; she must marry “in the Lord.” This goes further than what we just saw, for this means she must marry a Christian “in the will of the Lord.” One might marry a Christian that God never intended them to marry. It is wonderful to know that if the Lord wants you to remarry He has one specific person in mind for you. So, if she is going to remarry, she should seek the Lord’s will through prayer and ask Him to direct her to that special man He has created just for her. No doubt this man will also be a godly man, for “in the Lord” could also carry with it the thought that he is “subject to the Lord” in his life.  (187.3)  (DO)
